Fort Lauderdale Fishing Report Wahoos, Sailfish, And Sandbar Sharks

Detra and her boyfriend from Ohio were the busiest anglers of the Lady Pamela II sportfishing fleet today. The pair started the day with a nice sailfish catch, and then they hooked into something big. That something turned out to be a 350lb sandbar shark that really put a bend in the rod. It was a thrilling catch and release for the Ohioans, particularly since they were able to make the catch in t-shirts and shorts, rather than parkas!! They also caught four kingfish and a blackfin tuna to round out the day. Good job!

NIce Wahoos with Capt David And Capt Justin

Today the Lady Pamela IV team hosted another group of out-of-towners for some fair weather fishing. Captain Darin headed out into 220 feet of water, about where there had been some mahi-mahi action reported from the previous day. Sure enough, as soon as the baits hit the water, a hungry dolphin hit the line. The angling crew succeeded in landing a nice 18lb mahi-mahi. Not long after the baits were back in, the right rigger popped and the reel started singing. A wahoo had crashed the bait and took off to the races. As is often the case with these speedsters, he made a quick turn toward the boat and was able to throw the hook. Missing the wahoo sure was a disappointment, but the crew got back into the action and finished the day with a few bonitos.

Sailfish Release


Awesome Trip!

I took my 3 kids out with Captain David and Crew for a day of fishing in Miami. Upon arriving we were greeted by a beautiful marina and the captain was ready to go. We had the opportunity to catch some bait and the mate through the cast net a few times while my kids helped load them into the baitwell. We were fishing within 10 minutes and the action was great. I was just happy to share this with my kids, but Captain David went beyond my expectations. I highly recommend you book Lady Pamela. We will be back!
